In this episode of Conversations in Healthcare, Mike Ward talks to Werner Lanthaler, CEO of Evotec, about how COVID-19 is bringing pharma leaders together and giving them collaborative momentum. Dr. Lanthaler is a co-founding member of COVID R&D, a global pharma industry initiative that has come together to rapidly respond to the pandemic. Together they are fast-tracking learnings and protocols to create a toolbox that can accelerate activities like clinical trials, re-purposing compounds and data sharing to address the crisis faster. COVID-19 has brought barriers down and truly brought the healthcare industry together, but could this forced synergy and learning be used to accelerate treatment creation in the future?
